Christmas in July

Posted by Presently a.k.a Patrice DeHaven on 22nd Jul 2019

Yes, it's hard to believe that the holidays are approaching and really right around the corner!

I have to admit, I'm in the mode and The Hallmark channel has helped with their Christmas in July movies.

Christmas isn't just 1 day, or a season, it's a state of mind. A time of giving and that's something I like to hold on to throughout the year.  When we see the tangible input we have on others, how can we not be moved.

  Before you know it, I will be up to my nose in bows!

  An adorable sneak peek coming soon!

I will be headed to The National Gift Basket Convention in a few weeks.  Attending conventions tailored to your industry is so rejuvenating.  It helps me stay on top of the latest trends, taste my way through the isles of vendors to keep my shelves filled with a festival of flavors and place my holiday orders. So if there is something you want me to look for let me know.  

It really is the time to make your list for the holidays, personally and business wise.  Start NOW so you can enjoy the holidays, not be stressed and maybe even have time to do some volunteering. 

~ If you are a DIY person, start NOW.  

~ If you send gifts to clients to thank them for their business, make your list NOW.

   I recommend sending in November, it's the time of year to be thankful and you shine all by yourself.

   I also offer a Gift of the Month Program, Gratitude Gifting if you will. Smaller gifts are sent monthly, and those     little touches keep you top of mind.  

~ If you need to ship those holiday gifts, the carriers don't guarantee timely deliveries unless you pay extra for     them, so keep that in mind

~ Here at Carried Away Gifts, we ship nationwide and know when those cutoff dates are


Ask yourself, how do I make my clients feel?  Do you make them feel special working with you? Providing great customer service isn't good enough anymore.  How do you keep them loyal to you & your services?

People Will Forget What You Said, People Will Forget What You Did,

But They Will Never Forget How You Made Them Feel

Off to making my list!

Creatively yours,
